Yeah the current issue is that it's a static overlay like NVG's... not changeable.

Linkin added a comment to T73264: AI can accurately engage through near concealment when it has spotted an enemy which then moves out of LOS.

I can confirm that AI are able to call out "scratch one" with no visual line of sight - and funnily enough, if human players zoom in through a crest or similar, they can do the same, with no line of sight on the unit.

Exactly my point bootsy. The new setup is more time consuming.

It's no wonder there's already a virtual ammo box that has a lot more features, but it's still not got the ease of use of ARMA 2.

Linkin added a comment to T73001: Single Flare Mode Needs Simple Fix.

Single flare / semi automatic is essewtial. As a pilot in A2/OA with trackir and all, being able to pop a single set of flares is absolutely critical to all aspects of air combat.

Without being able to precisely control the amount of flares I use, my performance as a pilot is liimited to how quickly the flares run out. With a single flare (2 flares in reality), I have more control over when and how I release them.

It's a SIMULATOR.
/downvoted

That's where you are wrong. VBS 2 2.0 is a simulator. This is a game based on a simulator. Furthermore you could do this in ARMA 1 and ARMA 2 which are more like a sim than ARMA 3 at present.

Try it in real life

I dare you

Nice attempted troll. It's arguably easier to load a launcher compared to a rifle while moving, because the rocket is larger and easier to maneuver into the launcher.

See guys, I can play the trolling game too.

If you don't have anything constructive to add, don't bother commenting or voting.

A couple of things to note:

You are shooting at friendlies. Not normal behaviour. Test with enemy units or civilians.

Also looks as if you are playing on recruit/regular difficulty. Try on veteran or disable "extended armour" setting in game difficulty and retest.

I can also confirm with myself testing with clanmates that being near buildings/walls makes it worse for you if you are near an explosion. More likely to die/take damage.

Please test, try standing out in the open, then near or inside buildings at the same distance from the explosive.

Consider this scenario:

I have experienced this in both A2 and A3

Weapons should have set maximum lock on distance, maybe relying on if anyone in your group/squad has spotted the target or not. In the case of laser guidance it shouldn't matter, just lock on to the laser.

The scope of ARMA is combined operations... a medical system is part of this but blood transfusions in the field are ludicrous... in the field includes field hospitals.

There are other areas of the medical system that could use improvement. Bone fractures or breaks affecting limb movement/functionality for example.

Linkin added a comment to T67257: Player should fall to the ground when hit criticaly (but not be locked into it).

@GepardenK I'd prefer it not to be "random" as such, just based upon the type of weapon... for example

Sidearms should rarely knock you down
Rifles should knock you down pretty reliably (50%-75% of the time)
Heavy weapons, vehicle mounted weapons, and anti-tank weapons should always knock you down if it doesn't kill you outright

Honestly I liked the function of not being able to stand in A2/OA as it generally forced you to find a medic, ambulance, or some sort of safe place until your squad's medic or backup arrives.

Linkin added a comment to T67254: Improving the simplicity of controls - tips.

Tapping like in the video? Not a chance, and it is in no way simple.

Holding a key or pressing a key to toggle are the simplest ways of performing actions.

I do agree that ARMA 3's controls are an absolute hodge-podge right now, and ARMA 2 is simpler/more polished, if more restrictive.

Just give it time and think of better ways to make controls work better. Simplicity and not being overly complex is probably priority one.

Yes - Because US Marine Snipers do it at least. They have their precision M24, M110 or 50 cal alongside a standard M4/Carbine to blend in. Carrying a big rifle around makes you a target

Linkin added a comment to T65754: Ability to carry .50 cal anti-material sniper rifles in the launcher slot.

You can't carry heavy rifles and a smaller rifle, but you can carry some heavy rifles and a launcher, or a rifle and a launcher.

Sidearms don't always have the range you want, your rifle slot and launcher will be taken by your sniper.

There's a mod for A2/CO that allows you to store a weapon on your back/in backpack and switch between the one in your main slot, as well as carry a launcher.

This feature would require weapon resting system / deployable bipods / resting on objects or teammates

Linkin added a comment to T63051: Just a suggestion but have good 3 dimensional directional sound for headphones.

EDITED FOR CLARIFICATION

The use of binaural recording in game would enhance the effect of positioning that is already present in ARMA2/ARMA3 (see JSRS soundmnod, or ACEX_SM) - but using two microphones instead of one will increase the positional accuracy of sounds. This is still dependant on the sound engine of the game, and how it works is unknown to me (I am not a coder or programmer, but I know a thing or two about audio)

The best working example of this already-present positioning is to have a constant sound playing close (for example sustained MG fire), then free look with ALT and move the mouse slowly to rotate the camera. As your head moves with the camera, your "ears" will also move and the position of the sound will change.

As for your soundcards that you still have, what model is it, what headphones/speakers are you using, and what's the quality of your source material? (CD's? MP3's? Lossless?) It all matters!

May 10 2016, 12:28 AM · Arma 3
Linkin added a comment to T63051: Just a suggestion but have good 3 dimensional directional sound for headphones.

A good soundcard is not a scam. Even if everything is done in software, some DA conversion must take place (digital to analogue, as far as I know, my ears cannot listen to 0's and 1's), and quality of the conversion and analogue output is absolutely paramount to perceived quality.

For one, if you have a low signal to noise ratio, turning up the volume will result in audible distortion. If a source of noise is present, you may hear a low audible hum (just like you can get the 50hz mains electricity hum through speakers)

For binaural recording, see the virtual barbershop on youtube (best listened to with headphones): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IUDTlvagjJA

May 10 2016, 12:28 AM · Arma 3
Linkin added a comment to T63051: Just a suggestion but have good 3 dimensional directional sound for headphones.

@ daddaflex, any 5.1 or 7.1 headset, whether it uses software effects with 2 drivers (stereo) or has the right amount of drivers is a scam. None of them are any good when you have a dedicated sound card, some of them use USB. They are underdeveloped and focused on marketing, not function. If you have a real 5.1 speaker system, it works, which is a valid reason as to why A3 needs 5.1 support.

Just trying to spread some knowledge and stop people from buying expensive crappy headsets.

CMSS-3D works well, but it's buggy and prone to crash games.

As said by someone else, JSRS for A2/CO works wonders even with just stereo speakers/headphones and a good soundcard.

I stand by what I said before though; binaural recording for stereo would absolutely stellar!

Linkin added a comment to T63051: Just a suggestion but have good 3 dimensional directional sound for headphones.

True 3D sound is hard to do these days (thanks to microsoft effectively killing hardware acceleration for audio in vista and 7) and back in the day it required some CPU overhead, even with a dedicated sound card doing the processing.

5.1 and 7.1 headsets are also a scam, unless they have 6 or 8 drivers (respectively) then all they will do at best is a software simulation of surround sound, which may or may not work effectively.

I'd like to see binaural recording in ARMA 3 but that might just be a pipe dream.

Linkin added a comment to T63033: 40mm grenades from UGL don't deal damage in close range.

According to wikipedia:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_40_mm_grenades

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M203_grenade_launcher

Minimum arming distance appears to be about 40 metres.

However A3 uses some new fancy launcher, unsure as to if it uses the same ammunition as the m230 and m320 in A2. One would think so.

May 10 2016, 12:27 AM · Arma 3
Linkin added a comment to T63033: 40mm grenades from UGL don't deal damage in close range.

40mm grenades have a minimum arming distance, inside 50m would be considered danger close. 40mm frags simply won't go off if they are too close.

From what I have played it seems they have the same arming distance as ARMA 2 and expansions.

This is by design and is not a bug.

Linkin added a comment to T63001: Main Menu UI Improvements (Request).

I am glad to see this feature in the latest dev build (0.71 beta)

However it has some bugs:

When selecting all characters in the field and deleting them, typing a new number will put additional numbers at the end (in experience, commonly 500. So a value of 1000 inputted will result in 1000500, which is far too much and probably over the maximum)

Highlighting all characters and typing over them should wipe the field and then take the user's input.

Clicking into the field and backspacing manually works fine though.

Linkin added a comment to T58966: Insane recoil on weapons.

Weapons need to come somewhat back to the original position after firing, with your stance affecting how "accurate" that return is. As someone pointed out above, soldiers are trained in this. ARMA2/OA has the weapon returning to position almost perfect (note I did not say muzzle climb or the recoil, just how it returns and how it is affected by your stance) - please mimic this in A3.

This NEEDS to be assigned, built, and completed.

It's 2013. Mainstream shooters like battlefield have bipods and resting. Games built off of this very engine have bipod functionality.

Is it simply too hard to ask for a way to increase accuracy and reduce sway? Using Shift+B/H/Space to deploy a bipod is surely very simple.

Sure the ACE guys could make it, but why should they have to? How many more ARMA games will there be without bipods or rested shooting?

It's pathetic that this is still an issue.
